What I know about the current MNDF Communication and Information Technology...

This article is what I have learnt about the present MNDF Communication and Technology Department which comes under the MNDF Support Service Regiment....

I was in the National Security Service ( which is the old name of MNDF ) in 1995 to early 1997...I was in Police Head Quarters which was then a section of NSS...Now it is 17 years I had left NSS...

Maldives National Defence Force or MNDF has matured and is very professional...They are no longer "fools" which had termed before...

The MNDF has now a full telephone switch or exchange which is  rack mounted...They also have a mobile telephone switch or exchange in other words...The telephone exchange can give seven digit numbers to the telephones of MNDF whether they are in Male' City or any other island include Addu City and Foaumlak which is the most distance southern atolls of Maldives...As it is full telephone switch these telephones can't be eves dropped by Dhiraagu ( the telephone service provide of Maldives )...The mobile switch gives some selected senior officers ( including all the general officers ) a dedicated mobile number ( which is seven digit and like Ooredoo or Dhiraagu, the two mobile operators of Maldives ) and these mobile phones which the senior officers use can't be eves dropped or listened by Ooredoo or Dhiraagu staff...

Their communications monitoring systems are in MNDF Kahuthu Kalaa Koshi ( or KK in simple words ) which has computer systems monitoring the communication both incoming and out going...The MNDF has equipment which can listen to any mobile phone call made in Male' City near by...They use their own proxy web serves for the internet...They use their own web servers to host their web sites ( http://www.mndf.gov.mv and http://www.defence.gov.mv )...

They use the Tetra specification radios for their radio communications...The Maldives Police Service use Dimetra IP branded radios by Motorola and it's highly likely that the MNDF use these same radios...( Please read  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrestrial_Trunked_Radio )...

So that's what I know about MNDF Communication and Technology Department / Section....This article is only for academic consideration only....Don't try to use it against Maldives National Defence Force or Maldives Police Service...
